Leading the next generation of Indy sports strategy

The Sports Innovation Institute at IUPUI is the first of its kind in the United States.

Indianapolis has been a hub for sports innovation since 1909, when the Indianapolis Motor Speedway opened as a test track to support innovation in motorsports. The city envisioned an economic development strategy in the late 1970s that has led to a $3.4 billion sector annually in Central Indiana.
